in washington today, there was a major announcement regarding president obama's cabinet. massachusetts senator john kerry was nominated to be the next secretary of state. after confirmation, the former presidential candidate will succeed hillary clinton to serve as america's top diplomat. so what can we expect from him in that role? for answers, i spoke to the former u.s. state department spokesman. of course, americans united nations ambassador, susan rice, was the top favorite. how effective will john kerry be? >> he has great spirits. in a sense, the obama administration has used him very effectively in the past four years. he was first on the ground in copenhagen with the climate change negotiations. he was inserted into the troubled relationship the united states has with pakistan. he has had effective conversations with president karzai, and he did some yeoman's work when it came to negotiations with south sudan. he has made his mark already in terms of conflict reduction, crisis mitigation. i think he will carry that experience into his new position. >> nevertheless, some would say he h

it work? national correspondent steve centanni may be the only person left in washington. steve. >> reporter: it feels like it, the president is in hawaii and congress is out of town and the fiscal cliff negotiations are on hold for the holidays with no agreement in sight. john boehner is throwing the ball in the democrats' court saying the debt is too high, spending out of control and taxes should not go up. in the g.o.p.'s weekly address, he accused the president and the democrats of refusing to accept a reasonable compromise. >> the best way to address our crippling debt is to make significant spending cuts and fix our tax code. to pave the way for long term growth and opportunity. this is an approach most americans support and remains republicans' highest priority. but we only run the house. democrats continue to run washington. >> reporter: the president left town for his traditional christmas in hawaii and he and his family arriving there this morning and he has gotten in a round of golf already. before leaving the white house, he stayed back hayes spe-- scal back his expe
'm chris matthews in washington. let me begin tonight with this. president obama deserves the best possible secretary of state. he picked a great foreign policy officer in the first term. he deserves to have one in the second. it's been my view some distance from the white house that the president was truly undecided on who this person should be. ambassador rice's removal of herself from consideration made his decision easier. john kerry could end up a fabulous secretary of state, someone to make this country truly proud. he lost the presidency by a single state in 2004, then went on to become a deeply effective chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. he projects a grace under pressure that we see in the president himself, a noble attribute most of us take as quiet courage. as embarrassing as it is to admit, he is one of the few top politicians in this democratic country to master foreign languages. not a small talent in world diplomacy. i like kerry because he's had the guts to run for office just like hillary clinton. he's had the nerve to stick his neck out and ask the voter
, welcome about this. phil is out in spokane washington. hey, phil, good morning. >> caller: good morning, bill. >> bill: early morning out there on the west coast. >> caller: i'm a cook county democrat. and a steelworker. the fact of the matter is i want the right wing to step up and take responsibility for the ripple effect of air-traffic controllers because every time somebody dies in a right to work state, a coal mine and yes, in the gulf, that blood is on their hands. i've been -- osha becomes two-fer and the worker becomes -- indispensable. for the fact of the matter is every time a right to work state emerges, you have jim crow for the working man and woman in that state. he has no right. that's all i've got to say this morning. >> bill: hey phil, i appreciate your weighing in. it is true that in state after state after state evidence has shown not only are wages lower but working conditions in terms of health and safety for employees are a lot more perilous and as phil points out that has consequences. igo
to reach a tax-and-spending deal in washington. the president just spoke at length about negotiations and we'll get to that in a moment. but earlier we heard a stern warning for uncle sam, meaning all of us, from one of the world's leading credit rating agencies. fix the fiscal crisis or risk a downgrade. fitch warning again that it may strip the united states of its aaa credit rating if washington is unable to strike a deal to avert these big tax hikes and spending cuts that we're going to see at the end of this year and also to allow borrowing to rise. now this is not the first time we've heard of these warnings or have seen america's credit take a hit. in 2011, standard & poor's cut its u.s. rating to double a from aaa blaming political brinkmanship for preventing on a agreement on raising the debt ceiling. we heard the president talk about the standoff in debt negotiations, a deal our stuart varney said is raising red flags. here is what he had to say earlier on his show. >> right after the election the boss of big labor, richard trumka led a delegation of leftists into the white
it firsthand this week when i was down in washington. there is arrogance and condescension in many left wing precincts despite the fact that u.n. ambassador today susan rice is out of consideration for secretary of state. we will more on that with bob beckel coming up. the more secular progressives understand now is their time in history. the agenda is clear. above all the secular forces want to change the economy. they want the government to run it and provide graddle to grave entitlements for those americans who cannot or will not provide for themselves. the left also wants to control profits in the private sector taking as much money as possible away from the achievers and the corporations. again, with the intent to redistrict the cash. so that's agenda number one. number two, is to obliterate some american traditions. gay marriage, not about matrimony anymore. it's about civil rights. and if you oppose gay marriage you are a hater, a rights denier. legalized narcotics, the left sees drug users as victims and believes no one has a right to stand between an american and intoxication much.
.com. goodnight from washington. >> bill: the o'reilly factor is on. tonight ... >> the only thing left for barack obama to do is to worry about the third world dictatorses and put all these guys in jail. >> he's talking about me, your humble correspondent. this evening, we will continue our reporting. the far left on the march. [ music ] >> bill: young singers taylor swift and kat katy perry under e by a radical feminist who said they are insipid. >>> definef the fiscal cliff for me. some imaginary cliff in my mind that we're going to jump off of. >> bill: jesse watt iers quizes folks about the fiscal cliff. caution. you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >>> hi. i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. secular forces on the march. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. as we have been reporting. some committed left wing americans have been emboldened by the reelection of president obama. you're seeing that now in the budget negotiations as the president and his side are not in any compromising mood. i saw it firsthand this week when i
for their own political clout in washington. >> let me stop it there. if it's about who has the power, let's play what rush limbaugh and joe scarborough criticize. let me play it. >> so i assume 400 and then boehner did a million. i said, hey, that's great. these guys are coming together and i thought that number was going to be 500. the president would take 500, i think. >> he would. >> john boehner makes this -- you know, he said, starts talking about plan "b" and i get confused. >> if you look at what the speaker has proposed, he's conceded -- there it is. there's the word. there it is. stop the tape. that's what this is all been about. he has wanted the republicans to concede that tax cuts for the rich caused all these problems. >> so, there he is going on about the president, rush limbaugh, but he was critical of boehner. he played the conservative organizations who basically warned the republicans, we are coming for you. >> right. >> unhappy for different reasons. people on the left and people on the right but all unhappy with speaker boehner. does he have any power? >> i think one t
's something that we in the inner city in brooklyn and harlem, southeast washington, d.c., south central los angeles have been dealing with and it's become all too familiar. this summer in new york city was a summer of great violence. as you know, you helped to shine the spot light on some of the things that were taking place in new york. the problem now is one that i think can no longer be ignored by the congress. and the newtown tragedy has made a claim that it's no longer possible and should no longer be possible for the second amendment to shield the go government's ability to enablgt sensible gun safety measures. for too long, the second amendment has been used as such a shield. it protects responsible gun ownership, but it cannot protect the ability of people to possess high capacity ammunition clips, assault weapons, that can unleash mayhem on a community, on a school, on a neighborhood in a matter of moments. and i think there is going to be a moment in the early part of the congress, the democratic caucus, under the leadership of nancy pelosi has led to it. and i begin to see cracks
? >> think is act two of the political theater that we're seeing down in washington, the first act was rather comical with president obama's opening bid. now we have the republicans response to that. we'll see what happens in act three. right now let's face it there is a framework in place. it's simpson-bowles and the basis of the 2011 negotiations. not much is going to change from that. so when we're looking forward what needs to be done there's not a lot of options on the table. and the president does have to be concerned while he does have polls on his side, the fact is he does not want to start his second term off his legacy term in a recession, which if we go off the fiscal cliff that will happen. so it's not good for him and not good for the country and not good -- >> sthnt a bisn't this a buyer'? >> that's the issue. we talk about fining a solution the democrats -- they need one too. the fact is that they have to help the republicans get to the pathway of yes instead of forcing them down the road of no. so this does have to be a negotiation. don't you think? >> come on now. >> they rea
this went down. those are the breaks in washington. >> let me ask you, i know it's a question of trade craft and you're the best at it. so i'm not questioning how you find out things, but this one is tough. there are so many desperate streams of thought and emotion in this white house about this appointment, people who have their own interest, people like the security staff. the people close to the president from chicago. there's aspects of feminism here, aspects of sexism. so many swirling emotions and sentiments. how can you tell me what the president wanted? it seems so hard to get to him not just to people around him with their own agenda? >> i think you're right. there was a split, if you will. it's sort of the cold pragmatists all thought john kerry secretary of state makes sense. he's earned this. he deserves this. this is a good thing. and the foreign policy had to say you know what, secretary of state should be somebody who almost was president. you know? and in the heft of a hillary clinton being replaced by the heft of a person that was a football stadium away from being president
is agreeing to another bad inside-the-beltway washington deal. by the way, stealing from our children and our grandchildren -- that's immoral. which party now will stand up for them? for our kids? our grandkids? which party's going to stop the madness? joining me with reaction, florida senator marco rubio. you know, senator, i am a little frustrated here because this is our one check and balance -- and that case has not been made. what's wrong with making the case that they are the party against generational theft? i think that's a winning issue for any party that makes that case. >> thanks for having me on. it was a very powerful introduction. you are exactly right. here's the fundamental problem. i recognize the difficult position that the speaker's in now, if january,ing nothing happens, we go over the fiscal cliff. but i are right in the point we are making. this is the great flaw in all of these arguments that the president's making that i wish more people were talking about. if you raise taxes on the wealthiest americans, who he calls the wealthiest merv, people making $250,000 or more,
this whole fight over the fiscal cliff, the rangeling in washington has already caused a hit on the economy. can you explain sort of what the impact of the debate has been. >> you dw definitely seen it. ju as early as friday when we report that the president was not making his new offer with offers down at the white house. we saw the stock market sell off rather dramatically just in those couple of minutes as that news was coming out. i got to say that over the past 24 hours or so the stock market has been relatively calm sort of expecting a deal, expecting that lawmakers will somehow come to a consensus here. in terms of long-term planning, this is difficult for businesses who don't know what the tax situation is going to be for the next year. it's that uncertainty. so many businesses have such difficulty, and a lot of folks do say that there are a lot of hires that would have been made in the economy right now. new jobs created. new people added to existing companies that haven't happened as a result of this hangover over the economy, which is coming from the fiscal cliff. >> all right. a
